is not replicated. bill: peggy thanks for that. patti ann: now to the nation's airport where every day air travelers are dealing with new and tighter security requirements before boarding planes. mike is live at reagan national airport in washington. what does this seem like there? >> the mood seems to be very businesslike. obviously one of the key airports serving our nation's capital region. the people we talked to seemed to be taking it all in stride recognizing that if they are traveling day may be facing a normal in terms of security. we have seen greater t s. a. personnel visibly wearing the uniforms out near the checkpoint. we have seen even some additional equipment at checkpoints here. so far the crowd seemed to be moving along, and the travelers years seem to be doing their best to take in stride. patti ann: mike, have we heard much from the airlines about how they feel about the new tighter security? >> specific airlines have not spoken up. some of the aviation groups that represent the airlines say they are in favor of a security. the recognize that a lot of people in these organizations

about this, peggy noonan writing in "wall street journal," she says this -- she's worked in a republican white house as a speechwriter, a very smart woman -- does she have a point there? >> she's a have good writer and everything, yeah, if they shut the government down and try to impeach him, it probably will help him, but the democrats i don't think the president -- you know, the democrats are going to try to do as well as they can in the next election. we'll probably lose some seats. president reagan lost seats in, but the predictions were that you were going to lose more seats, if i remember. >> i have to wonder, james, whether, despite the fact that you got your president reelected in '96, whether you wouldn't have preferred we had not taken over for congress and you had your own majority for the remaining six years. >> on election night in november of 1994, i didn't go, wow, just what we needed. no one wants to lose an election, i promise you. >> there's still plenty of time between now and november, though economists still say, tony, as you well know, that given the population grow
